i want to replace all my guages in my 64 bug, was thinking about putting wood or diamond plate on dash and taking a hole saw and putting in all new, i checked out the autometer site ,they have some called cobalt,that look nice--forgot to get price-anybody have any ideas on products, what got me started on this is that the speedo and fuel arent working, possibly cable and a sending unit, is my stock instruments worth re-building? Question

JC Whittney is good price competition, just make sure you dont end up with their no-name brands.

I have used quite a few guages over the years. By far Autometer and VDO are the best two out there as far as reliability and accuracy. Stay away from the cheap junk.

Can other people post pictures of their dashes? That way the rest of us who are still contemplating what to do can see what looks best. Cool

vdo gauges are priced very well, with good quality. the little panels arent too great, but they were cheap, and will work fine until i re do my dash

thanks for the feedback everybody, i like the one piece, i checked out pep boys and they did not have speedometers, lots of everything else, i guess speedos are expensive, they have a re-build dvd on e-bay for i think $10.00, vdo i will have to check out.
